Reviewed 25 July 2012

This place made our stay in Sarajevo very pleasant. The owner was very helpful and willing to give us any service we needed. He brings you downtown with a taxi for a reasonable fare. The Hotel offers some main excursions. We choose an excursion to the Tunnel (7 Euro a person) The owners kind nephew Eldin brought us there and led the tour which was an eye opener. Totally recommend this palce. Albert

First the pluses: well appointed room, nice bathroom with good shower, air conditioning that works and quite good breakfIast as long as you get there half an hour before breakfast finishes.

On a negative point we found the owner to be arrogant, rude and dishonest. The room advertised on their website as a double was a twin and on a corner so incredibly dark. We asked why it wasn't a double but they said it was a double, we just had to push the beds together. However you can't do this because the bed frames are in the way, so it is basically a twin! The owner said there was absolutely no way he could move us as they were full both days. However when we looked on booking.com there was a room left that night and several the next day so he was basically lying to us. We also had no 'view' and no balcony that had been mentioned in many of the other reviews.

Also, we had a nightmare finding it. I'd emailed twice that day asking for directions and had no response so we headed into town as it says central on their website but then had to go all the way out again, it absolutely is not central! The owner was not remotely apologetic and said he was too busy to email as they were full (all 15 rooms), he said it shouldn't have been a problem for us and that if we wanted to leave we were welcome!

A couple of other things: add €8 return to the price of your room for each return trip into town, a 10 minute drive away; additionally expect to end up in a sweat as there are waterproof mattress protectors under the under sized sheets so you never feel dry sleeping on what would otherwise have been a nice (single) bed.

Furthermore, it is definitely NOT a 15 minute walk into the old town, it takes 10 minutes to drive so would be a 45 min to one hour walk.

I wouldn't go back due to the terrible location which adds a lot onto the price of your stay and the unhelpful dishonest owner.

Room Tip: Don't go for room 8 unless you want a dark corner room and it is a TWIN not a double as the owne...

Although it is located on the hill, the Pansion is well maintained (as if it were new although it was already 4 years old). Especially, with outdoor temperature of about 33 C, the good working condition of air-conditioners (which is not common in Bosnia) is a bonus. The breakfast is generous. Over the balcony, there is a panoramic view of Sarajevo. The walking up and down to the old town is not easy. A taxi which is cheap is a convenient transportation means. I would definitiely stay in this Pansion again if I return to Sarajevo.

Pansion Harmony is signposted from the main road into Sarajevo which we were very grateful for and also for the lovely welcome when we arrived after a 5 hour drive. Our room was spacious and very clean with a great view of Sarajevo. Yes, it's quite a walk into the centre (and uphill on the way back was a challenge in the heat) but taxis are very cheap. We were made to feel very welcome as if no request would be too much & would definitely recommend this as a very reasonable place to stay in Sarajevo.

We are a Franco-Turkish family. That's why, Bosnians are as close as brothers and sisters to us. After positive reviews we didn't hesitate to choose this pension and thank you to all reviewers, we were not mistaken.

Small, family run, very clean, within the easy reach to the Old Town and with excellent breakfast. If you drive a car, signposts are a bit insufficient. Pay great attention on your right to see their green colored signs. Although they are very small they have their transport facility at a reasonable price to old town, so, you don't need to pay a full day parking fee for your rental car.

Only issue for us is their retail method. They prepare their guest so much for a panoramic view that when you check-in, you see that the best panorama is for the owners family occupying the roof ! Anyhow, we strongly recommend this pension managed by two polite and very cooperative young man. Thank you Tariq and Edin

Room Tip: For best panorama of Sarajevo go to Avaz Tower at center

Pansion Harmony is far from the center, and that's the only negative point. But it really is not that far, if you are ready to walk a little (uphill), or to take a short and cheap taxi ride. Except for that, it is perfect. It's cheap, quiet, the rooms are nice, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is amazing.

Stayed here just a week ago, in first we were afraid because it wasn't in barščaršija area as we wanted. But its not far at all, just a 5 minute drive form the hotel. The rooms are very clean and nicely furnished. Parking is not a problem. The staff was very friendly and helpful. breakfast was very nice and tasty.
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who comes to Sarajevo.
